AutomationDirect strongly recommends the use of ZIPLink cables and wiring modules, which eliminate the need for hand wiring of I/O modules to terminal blocks. In fact, many of the Productivity3000 I/O modules do not include the terminal board for direct connection of I/O. In particular, the high-density (32-point and 64-point) modules require the use of the ZIPLink cables.

Note: ZIPLinks are available for most, but not all I/O modules. See the selection matrix below.
